Wow that's not a video I was expecting to see tonight. What a crazy adventure for the cat. I can only imagine what the little guy must have thought
of the view. He did look down a few times, like he was watching how high up he was.
Wow that cats got a story to tell to the other cats in the alley. This one time i flew! I swear guys! The other cats are like yeah right. There he
goes again with his flying story.

Sailplanes have a vent that brings air into the cockpit from outside. It's just a straight vent. However it's small and protected. If you don't do a
thorough preflight, including checking in there, you can get to altitude only to find that you now have a pretty pissed off Wasp in the cockpit,
usually after it bounces off your face.
When I was a aircraft mechanic a while ago, the company I worked for had a old Lear jet the owners and management would use to fly around to different
locations. This one time somebody brought a cat along and thought it would be cool to let it run around the plane while in flight. Sometime in the
flight they had a problem with the outflow valve for the cabin pressurization system. The system blows a constant amount of bleed air into the cabin
and the out flow valve regulates the pressure in the cabin. They ended up having to make a emergency landing at the closest airport. Apparently the
cat got in the out flow valve and the cabin wasn't depressurizing. I can't remember if the cat died or not.
